Well, school is starting to wind down finally, and I'll be able to get back into some projects. Some problems with doing leather work though... I live in an apartment and a war has been waged with my neighbors... They've threatened to call the cops if I keep hammering and doing leatherwork. Not that the cops would do anything since I only do it during normal waking hours, but I could get in trouble with the complex... These are super obnoxious neighbors, and they started it, so I've been making calls every time they throw loud parties now... it's been nicely quiet as of late. Long story short, I need to move parts of my work station down to my parents house so that I can finish a few projects that require hammering to punch holes etc...
In the mean time however, I've began making beautiful hair bows (not made of leather). I will post some photos when I get the chance, and I will be selling these on Etsy I think.

This will be a busy summer for me. In addition to the normal working all summer thing, I will also be taking a huge trip to Vienna, Austria to present at the World Congress of Music Therapy. This is a huge achievement and a huge honor. This will also be my first time outside of the US. Super exciting!!!

Sure that would be fine. And I live way away from the coast so no worries of hurricanes here.

Thanks,
I'd clicked that you were same time zone as me and it did occur that you might be one of the people in N.Jersey.

How the pewter going?:)
I've loved pewter ever since I was a teenager and found an art nouveau pewter vase amongst some junk.

it's going. I only have the class once a week. I just started shaping it last week. I'll finish shaping it this week and then start sanding level and flat the edges that will be soldered together.

Sounds cool, I know absolutely nothing about working lead alloys - flat "butt" seam?

It's going to be another piece of pewter put in between the two ends to create like a step or a lip. The professor said that doing it that way and soldering one side on the inside of the flask creates less problems with leakage because there's more area to work on that way or something.
